and beltway bell weather david brooks, writing in the "new york times," brooks said avoiding a debt default is the mother of all no-brainers for the gop. the struggles of the next few weeks are about what sort of party the gop is, a normal conservative party or an odd protest movement that separated itself from the habits of our nation. if reasonable republicans don't take control, independents will conclude the republican fanaticism caused this default and conclude republicans are not fit to govern, and they'll be right. it appears we don't need a few weeks to see which way the gop will tilt. we had a good sense of it this afternoon. here's john cornan on. >> the president is not listening to the same people i'm listening to, my constituents. it seems disingenuous to say we're going to cut spending but also going to raise taxes. we're not for raising taxes through the front door or through the back door. i would say it's premature to declare who's being reasonable and not. >> here's house budget paul ryan on a conservative radio show. >> if you take a deal like this, you're requiring tax r

of politics? that is the question. david brooks, a conservative -- i repeat, conservative columnist for the new "new york times," hs hired for that reason, that usually liberal editorial page, they wanted someone who wrote well and was a certified conservative. david brooks is who they chose. david brooks believes that, it's obviously turned into the ideological paerl that walks -- party that walks away from compromise for the sake of politics. this is what he said yesterday about the logical and ideological republican party that has emerged. here's what he said -- and i quote -- "if the debt ceiling talks fail, independent voters will see the democrats are willing to compromise, but republicans were not. if we default, he said, it will be the fault of republican fanatacism." that fanatacism is making compromise impossible, no matter how much democrats are willing to give. independent voters, brooks says -- and i quote -- "will conclude that republicans are not fit to govern, and they will be right." end of quote. david brooks, conservative columnist, said this. the republican party
to be reached. right now it looks like we're in a game of the brinks manningship. >> this week david brooks which i'm sure you're familiar with this article in "the new york times" saying quote, if responsible republicans don't take control independents will conclude that republican fanaticism caused the default. they will conclude that republicans are not fit to govern and they will be right, end quote. so are republicans giving too much weight to the tea party caucus right now? what do you think? >> i don't think so. if you paid attention, i know you did and jamal did to the elections last year, we saw a lot of democrats campaigning not to raise taxes in a time of recession. that that would be a jobs killer. an economic mess for us. and we want to listen to those democrats who push that in november, certainly a lot of republicans did as well or republican leadership pushes that. that's good and proper. we want to remember that the bush tax cuts as they're called really have become democrat tax cuts. they were signed into law and passed by a democrat house and senate. >> as we look at this
people have been writing about this. david brooks in "the new york times" had an interesting story saying this is the mother of all no brainers, that republicans could be squandering an opportunity. another sees it as an error by the president. where it goes from here, we don't know. we know the great eight, as we are now dubbing them, because we have to have nicknames in washington for these people, but the leaders from the house and senate republicans and democrats meeting with the president. a quick statement from mitch mcconnell, the minority leader. these are not about rich or poor in an election but they're about making washington take the hit and make tough choices for a change. not the taxpayers and job creators. very firm on their position. no new taxes and democrats and the president says with we need to have new revenues. so that's where the problem is right now. >> and brooks' comment along with other republicans is that in exchange for increasing a few hundred million dollars in taxes, they could be getting trillions of dollars in cuts. the president is going to be hearing fr
, and that is to their running interference for. host: david brooks had a column on monday in "the new york times." he said this -- reareferring to the tax subsidis for corporate jet owners and other tax loopholes being closed. do you agree? caller: yes. guest: i think brooks is oversimplifying there, only because we have had this promise on the table before. we had in 1982 and 1983 and 1990 under a republican president. we have it with the commission's plan. if we're going to work out something involving revenues, we have to see spending cuts taking effect, and has to be in the context of reforming the system, otherwise we will get higher taxes and never get the spending reductions. republicans again have not handled this issue all that well, especially with long-term reforms like the balanced budget amendment, which the leader some -- leadership seemed prepared to through in the tatrash can on the vote. i think it also symbolizes the balance we want to restore to fiscal policy, because the gop had lost its way during the bush era, especially on spending, and continues to stumble on the issues that people

columnist david brooks has said -- quote -- "a normal republican party would seize the opportunity to put the country on a sound fiscal footing." he calls it -- quote -- "the mother of no-brainers," but it is true as many have said that this republican party is not your grandfather's republican party. it is not even ronald reagan's republican party. this republican party is so far to the right that it cannot even see the center where ideologies converge and good governance begins. this republican party sees the process of governing as one-sided, their side and no other. today, those on the far right wave the constitution that established a form of government to protect us from tyranny, yet see any form of compromise as defeat, and the only clear victory is total surrender to their position. and so here we are, working to try to ensure that reason prevails. we have offered the largest spending cuts in a generation. asking that those cuts be accompanied by closing tax loopholes and ending tax giveaways and unreasonable subsidies to those who need them the least, but because almost every re
